Headache for Roberto Mancini. This Saturday, the Italian football federation announced the dismissal of Giovanni Di Lorenzo.
The 28-year-old Neapolitan was injured and will not be able to compete against North Macedonia in the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup play-off (in the event of victory, let’s remember, Italy will play with the winner of the match between Portugal and Turkey). Trained in Lucchese, Di Lorenzo has 19 selections for the transalpine team.
